Does Your Organisation Provide the Key Traits Employees & Candidates Seek in an Employer?

Randstad Employer Brand Research, May 2018

Randstad's research highlighted the key traits employees and candidates are looking for in an employer, with 54 per cent of jobseekers suggesting work-life balance is the number-one reason to choose an employer.

The results also show a disconnect between what employees want and what employers offer, which highlights more work needs to be done by organisations to align their employer brands to jobseeker values. 

Employee satisfaction with mentoring in decline

Organisations see a need for mentoring programs but lack the drive to implement them, according to new research.

The survey of 41 companies found more than two-thirds think mentoring programs are important, but haven't introduced them because of a lack of clarity on where to start, or because other initiatives have taken precedence or they have insufficient funding.

Further, of those that do have a mentoring program, satisfaction is declining, it found.

The trend towards lower satisfaction is fuelled by high dropout rates, caused by lack of structure, and a lack of resource investment. Employers can increase program completion rates by ensuring expectations are clear and agreed upon, providing training to adequately equip mentors, getting line manager buy-in, and linking participation to KPIs, the report says.
